Let's take a breather this weekend and just let it all sink in before I share more on Monday ...
Remember it's good to change things up once in awhile! Sometimes we get stuck in a rut and it's so hard to get out. By just changing one thing - like having breakfast in the morning, can make a positive change in your day and before you know it you are slowly working your way out. Other times we need to do something differently because what we used in the past, may not work for us RIGHT now.
Those of you who are drinking more water - GOOD for you!!! Now some of you have expressed that you are more thirsty than ever. Here is my theory and I picked this up from watching Dr. Oz:
- When people eat too much and don't drink water, their bodies become used to getting their water through food instead of drinking it. So they get the feeling of HUNGRY when their bodies need water. Which makes them eat more, but not drink anymore
- If you have been drinking soda and eating salty food and only getting your water through food for a long time, you may be very dehydrated, so it may take a while before you've replenished your body's supply of water. When you are used to getting your water through drinking, you will generally feel thirsty more often than a body that is used to getting its water through eating.
- When you start drinking more water from your bottle, you will feel thirsty when your body needs more water, because your body would really rather you drink the water than eat it, it gets into your system faster.
- You may be flushing out toxins. Things like breathing polluted air, preservatives, smoking, not washing off your makeup, drinking caffeine or alcohol, or taking many medications. For many of the toxins, not all, the most effective way to get rid of the toxin is to flush it out. Toxins that you can't flush out with water get removed by sweating or going #2. Depending on how much toxins you have you may be extra thirsty, even if you aren't dehydrated anymore.
